climate of san francisco. the america's cup will help us nationally and internationally. it creates business opportunities and jobs. the contribution to the economy is obvious. visitor's events, international television exposure, tax revenue, the less obvious but just as direct of impacts of this event will last way beyond the 34th america's cup races and the 5th america's cup races and the 36th and the 37th.

, then the america's cup i think we can all perhaps start to see will be simply sensational. they have raced all over the world and i can tell you that san francisco was at the front of the cue when the natural attributes were handed out. to me, the bay area is the perfect sailing stadium. you have strong winds. you have an open relatively deep waterfront where the boats can cut the sail right in close against the peers and so forth and having competed in the olympics in america's cup quite a few times, i have seen firsthand the positive and enduring benefits, and, jennifer, you mentioned a lot of them, that such an iconic world class boating event can bring, not just to the host city, but often the host nation. so i'm convinced that people that will eventually look back on this america's cup, instead of calling it the 34th america's cup or even the 2013 america's cup, i believe it will come to be known as the san francisco america's cup.

the america's cup in america. and all this racing will take place right off the city front. the start line will be adjacent to marina green where the golden gate bridge at a backdrop. from the start, it will take the boats probably less than a minute to scream towards the first turn which would be only about 150 yards off the shoreline, so close to the water's edge in fact that you'll be able to hear the sound of the winches and the voices of the crew. i'm talking about polite voices. the regatta director has just issued a directive about the salty language needing to be a little sweeter. then boats will rip up and down the bay. on that first leg, they'll approach speeds close to 50 miles per hour, but they'll rip up and down the bay over a three-lap course and then the finish line will be right off here at piers 27 and 29. so the america's cup competition will be 162 years old, this fantastic trophy next year, yet it will have seen nothing like what's about to happen in san francisco. this will be the fastest, most fan friendly cup there has ever been. you'll have the drama and excitement

't lower taxes. but when america does well, you should be proud to keep that system going so the next people can come and use the roads in internet and stuff but you didn't have to buy yourself. that return on investment for the american people is violated when you give massive tax cuts to the people at the top. then the people at the top can benefit from america, but they don't have to pay it back. it leaves the middle class in freefall. i think the books content bush tax cuts expire, it's time for wealthy america to pay america back. that should be over. it was not tough enough on that, the first part of obama's presidency. the buffett rule is pushing him in the right direction. i think what is amazing is that warren buffett is virtually known as a wealthy person who is smart and wealthy. but he wasn't a political -- he didn't have a political idea. but obama was a genius to draw a connection between a wealthy person like that. and his secretary, and use that relationship to tell a whole story. that is obama at his best. he has done something well. he has done some things poorly, bu

't tell james madison that. and so deeply engrained was this notion of the new israel in america, that at the conclusion of the american revolution in 1783, there was a debate between the u.s. leadership over what was going to be the great seal of the united states. and a certain group of american leaders thought that it should be the bald eagle but another group said no, the image of the united states, the seal should show moses leading the children of israel out of bondage and into the promised land. there was this heated debate. america came this close to having moses as its national symbol. you got the folically challenged bird instead. but the authors of the moses seal were none other than thomas jefferson and benjamin franklin. so they had internalized the biblical narrative. now, for many of this generation of founding mothers and founding fathers, the fact that they were the new israel meant that they had a kinship relationship with the old israel, the jewish people. it meant since they were -- they had inherited a new promised land. they had a connection with the old pro

the america's cup and thamplinge the city, event authority and port of san francisco for everything that you're doing to bring this event here. i think it's important to recognize that for every $300 spent in a hotel, additional $700 are spent in businesses surrounding the hotels. and those are often small businesses in other areas of the city. events that market san francisco to a global market have an effect and benefit beyond the event itself. while the america's cup will be wonderful for the city, there's also a way of getting a word out there we have an incredible city and world class waterfront and some of the changes coming about because of america's cup will help us for generations to come. we wanted make sure that you know we support this and urge you to approve the recommendations that are before you today. thank you so much for your time. >> thank you. norman pierce, is this for 9-a? go ahead. >> norman pierce. i'm a sailor and staff commoner and big supporter of this project from day wufpblet i'm so happy it's gotten to this point. anticipating positive response from you as a gro

or mortgage lenders, when it's good for business, good more the marketplace, it's good more america! [applause] plus we don't expect government to solve all our problems. and we shouldn't try. i learned from my mom that no amount of education can take the place of a parent's love and attention, sometimes getting in your face and telling you what you need to do. as a young man i worked with catholic churches who taught me that no program can take the place of the kindness and commitment of a caring soul. not every regulation is smart. not every tax dollar is spent wisely. not every person can be helped who refuses to help themselves. that's what we believe. people have to make an effort. people have to try hard. but, that's not an excuse to tell the vast majority of responsible, hard-working americans you're on your own. unless you're lucky enough to have parents who can lend you the money, you cannot go to college. even if you pay your premiums every month, you're out of luck if an insurance company decides to drop your comfortable when cu need it most. that's not america. that's not who we ar
